Drag it out of the trash... and make it beautiful

Sorry.  I'm very excited about this one.  I had an idea pretty much as soon as I read the words "doll head" in the original thread, and after some thought and a trip out for supplies, I started work on this:



It's got pom poms, it's got macaroni, it's got pipe cleaners, it's got popsicle sticks...  and, of course, a big ol' doll head. 

Detail shots:



You can't see it too well in the picture, but I did everything I could to make my doll's skeleton reasonably correct.  I'm shy a few ribs, and my radius and ulna wouldn't stay apart the way I wanted them to, but I'm still quite proud.



Already lost a bit of macaroni...  next time, I'll use much more hardcore glue to hold it in place.



No, it's not a Santa hat - it's a chandelier!  Kind of.  Perhaps I shouldn't have used the red pipe cleaner for that...

I'm honestly quite proud of this.  It was a fair bit of work, but it came out much cooler than I expected, and I now have a whole host of doll-related projects waiting in the wings.

I love the chandelier. I thought they were stars at first but a chandelier is much better. Well done.
